We welcome all your donations of food, toiletries and any other consumables that would help with making life that bit better for someone. We do ask that they be of a good standard as well as having a ‘use by’ date that permits us to distribute them.
We are very grateful to the local retailers, local primary schools and others who take donation for us as well as the local church members, amongst others, who also give financially to our work.
Food Donations :
Our food needs tend to be for the basics such as pasta, beans, cereal, rice, tinned veg, puddings and fruit, cordial and basic food cupboard items such as salt, etc.
From time to time we put out a call for more specific items that we are running short on and these will vary from time to time.
At present the most pressing need is for the following items :-
Tinned carrots and other tinned veg
Cartons of juice
Tins of soup (other than tomato)
If you can help with any of these please drop in what you can at the donation points listed below or contact the foodbank by email through our ‘Contact Us‘ page on this website or by calling the mobile number on 07840 957039.
Food Donation Points :
For the time being our collection points are restricted. However, we still have donation points at:-
Newport Scotmid Store
Financial Giving :
Whilst we get donations of food and other goods and essential items we still need money to help us to keep going and to purchase perishable items such as fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, butter, bread, cheese, eggs, special dietary foods and the like.
To help with these financial contributions we have set up a ‘giving by text’ system.
